MINI celebrates 50th anniversary w/ Coupe Concept

mini coupe conceptYesterday, August 26, marked 50 years of MINI. In response to this historic milestone, the folks over @ MINI put together this rad little 2-seater, the MINI Coupe Concept (“CC”).

It’s based on the regular Cooper Hatchback but sports a lightweight aluminum roof to help lower its center of gravity. Strictly a two-seater, the low roof line, compact dimensions, perfect axle load distribution and lightweight construction are all trademarks of a genuine sports car. Other unique elements include a body colored grille and matching inserts on the wheels and rear diffuser.

The CC is set to go on display next month at the Frankfurt Auto Show alongside its rumored (previously mentioned) fraternal twin, the MINI Roadster. Happy 50th, MINI…keep up the jolly good work!
